have stayed in this place over the past 4 yrs. the standard has been maintained. however it is an old place with signs of aging and not much maintenance. not much to say by way of facilities, however it is a clean, decent place to stay. however, now addis has a lot of swanky new places to stay at the same prices as global. just a little bargaining needed. would definitely give it a miss next time!!

I do not know what whould you expect from a developing country but even though Global does not meet Western Standards, it is a decent Hotel close to Airport and center. Rooms are large enough with sufficient hygiene, had hot water and some English Chanels on TV probably broadcasting from Mid East. Ther is also an Italian eatery and a grill right next to the Hotel, which the restaurant and breakfast did not satisfy at all.

Furnishing ws old, business center was okay and staff was quite helpfull.

I have Just returned from Addis Ababa, checked in the Global on 23 Jan 10, room 607 was initially allocated to me. The shower never worked, water was trickling and no constant hot water supply. After complaining the hotel tried to fix it but still did not improve. Another room (603) was given the next day, shower slightly better. I found the rooms not very clean, the paint on the walls run down, towels are dirty. Generally the staff are trying hard to please but with the conditions that the rooms are, its a loosing battle. I am very surprised that the hotel is graded as 4 star!!! As most of the hotels are fully booked due to an AU summit I had to cut short my visit. The printer in the business center never worked.

Hotel used only on nights before flights back home, so I cannot write a complete report.
Even if the structure is old, rooms are clean, bathrooms are really ok and well equipped, cleanliness is appropriate. Breakfast and dinner are in the mid-range, but restaurant and bar are nice above all for the interior decorations.

Global Hotel is great! I went there with my boyfriend and two colleagues of him, first for two nights and after a tour to the North of the country for two other nights, always in a twin bed double room with private bathroom and a little balcony. The rooms had a good size and were always clean, the price was fair ( US $ 58 per night). In the lobby there is free internet access and in the cellar you can find a sauna and a steam bath (unfortunately I did not find the time to go there). The airport shuttle works well and also the breakfast has been always very good, such as other meals I had in the hotel restaurant.
The staff is always present and very helpful, when I had a medical problem on the last day they gave me free shuttle service to the next hospital and pharmacy. The fact that these were close by makes another advantage of Global Hotel.
Even at night you can always find easily a taxi in front of the hotel, the staff will give you advice if you want to find a good restaurant or bar of your choice in the city centre. But there are also some restaurants for lunch or coffee close by. In conclusion, Global Hotel is an excellent choice if you are looking for a hotel in Addis Abeba with western comfort and class, but also with a very Ethiopian flair.

I slept 5 nights in the Global Hotel, I can recommend the hotel for many reasons:
- Quality of the room; very big, tv, telephone, room service, big bathroom
- Services: airport shuttle (included in the price), good restaurant, a shop where it is possible buy guide, souvenirs, mobile card, free internet and wi fi.
-People: all the staff is very friendly and they helped me to find good restaurant, reserve me table for the dinner, pub and club, they helped me to find a good doctor and clinic for health problems with
